Fringe Festival Fun…

“The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the largest arts festival in the world and takes place every August for three weeks in Scotland’s capital city.”

What a beautiful day it has been!

I knew the forecast was favourable, so I planned a trip to Edinburgh, to soak up some Festival Fringe atmosphere. For me, one of the most enjoyable aspects of the Fringe, is being able to walk through the bustling, vibrant street performers, exploring the trading areas and sampling flavoursome food from the many stalls set out in the Mound Precinct.

It’s so exciting; it’s like everyone is on a communal holiday and have headed to the carnival.

Fancy a ride on the Big Wheel?

Many of the Fringe groups who are performing later in the day, are given a 20 minute slot, ideal to give you a taste of what their show is about. There are many happy and enthusiastic artists, handing out flyers and touting for customers…

How could you refuse an invitation like this?

A fusion of energetic music and art…

Lively music and dancing too!

There is so much to see, hear and do and the tourists and local crowds are well entertained with buskers, street performers, circus acts, numerous living statues and let’s not forget our Scottish Pipers.

This is an international festival and that’s what make the event so special. People flock from all over the world to perform, sell their creative craft work on their market stalls and visit Edinburgh, our beautiful capital city.

I had a great day out,
